Farrier and Rajiyyah’s lovely leg

Farrier came tonight. She was very pleased with how Isis’ feet looked, and Rajiyyah’s front feet — until we spotted the cut on Rajiyyah’s back leg. The cut is in a location that is hard to stitch due to the tension on the location. Rajiyyah was not lame (a good thing) — which means that no tendon damage occurred. At least that’s what I hope that means.

So, I made a judgment called and opted not to call the vet out. I followed regular protocol: 20 minutes hydrotherapy to help the swelling, washed it out with chlorhexedine antibacterial/antimicrobial solution, and used Nolvasan ointment on the wound. Have to keep a close eye on the cut. Here’s hoping it doesn’t get infected…
